The Senate has given approval in principle to the Trudeau government’s bill to legalize recreational marijuana.
Bill C-45 passed at second reading this evening by a vote of 44-29..after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reminded the senators that his government was elected on a promise to legalize recreational marijuana.
That was seen as a subtle warning that they should not attempt to thwart the will of Canadians – or the government they elected.
